What small changes did you implement for your users that really helped them out in their day to day work?

It uses lightweight, standard OS mechanisms. Distro repos on the Linux side, munki for Mac, f-droid for Android, etc. Obviously this isn't possible for Apple iOS.
A K12sysadmin’s Musings and Recap of the Past Few Years

Now more than ever, we should be considering using Free and Open Source technologies before rushing out and buying products and services. Automation tools like Ansible, or software management tools like Munki are high quality and free. Even traditional needs like storage and firewalling can be augmented with high quality open source products like PFSense or TrueNAS. Hell, Packet Fence can even give you an extremely competitive product to Cisco ISE for free. Remember your annual renewal for Track-IT or whatever ticketing system you are using? Maybe you should consider using osTicket. Even FOSS virtualization platforms like XCP-NG and Proxmox are really coming to their own. With all of the instability over at VMWare, being bought by Dell, spun off, and now bought by Broadcom, I don’t know what I am going to do.
macOS/IOS/iPadOS App Deployment and Monitoring

The Demo setup is super simple to follow. When I migrated our Mac server to a new machine, I moved the repo folder and just followed the guide. Took me an afternoon, so imagine a few days tops for someone who has never used it before. We also have autopkgr feeding app updates into Munki each week, but if ABM and Jamf is close, you could just do manual imports of what you want into Munki.
Munki repaeatable deployment

From what I remember, munki doesn’t use the built in python, instead it bundles it’s own. What version of munki are you running? If it’s less than 5.5 consider upgrading munki before moving forward. https://github.com/munki/munki/releases/tag/v5.5.0 Bumped the Python version to 3.9.5 (from 3.9.4)2 projects | reddit.com/r/macsysadmin | 2 Mar 2022
You can create a nopkg. https://github.com/munki/munki/wiki/nopkgs
Alternate ways of app deployment?

Question: Force Munki to check for updates as soon as it’s installed
3 projects | reddit.com/r/macsysadmin | 24 Dec 2021
To get around this there are two options. 1. Use the DEP package - https://github.com/munki/munki/releases/download/v5.6.2/munkitools_DEP-188.8.131.5298.pkg. Any of the DEP packages in the releases page should work but might as well grab the latest. I can’t find the link at the moment but I believe this just loads the daemons on the postinstall script.3 projects | reddit.com/r/macsysadmin | 24 Dec 2021
